The managers of Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL) broke ground on the construction of its flagship project (Terminal 3) at Kotoka International Airport (KIA) in March 2016. The project has been completed and fully operational and indeed looks like an international airport. This has no doubt been an eye opener to other African countries, mostly Nigerians.
The airport is operated by Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL), which has its offices on the airport property.
The airport expansion supports the country’s ambition to upgrade its vital infrastructure by modernising and transforming the airport into a gateway for West Africa and as a regional aviation hub. It is also expected to contribute to the country’s economy by facilitating market connectivity and by reducing the cost of doing business.
The expansion also supports the Ghana Shared Growth and Development Agenda that emphasises the need for rehabilitating and expanding infrastructural facilities in the transport sector.
African Travellers across the world travelling via the airport are very impressed with the new look and organisation, sharing pictures on social media and calling for Africans to have a lool.
